Thursday morning in Wales began quite typically with enormous amounts of food [which hadn't yet arrived when this photo was taken!] and coffee.
Dan and I posed for some photos, seeing as we never bothered to have a proper engagement shoot during our engagement, eleven [!?!] years ago. Our outfits certainly fit the occasion, as did our hair, styled by the strong sea breezes.
We scrambled through the sand dunes, some of us barefoot, to a rocky beach where an expanse of wild waves greeted us. Cardigan Bay, known in Welsh as Bae Ceredigion, stretches out into the Irish Sea. The three boys waded into the bay, but Coo found it way too cold, and stood shivering in the chilling wind, wrapped in Nanny's jacket and Grammy's scarf.
"The chalet", belonging to our close family friends, is one of Lefty and Righty's most favourite places, so it was very appropriate that we were able to spend their birthday here. They loved every minute of this day, especially tea time and the cakes that followed!
